This watchdog blog, by journalist Norman Oder, offers analysis, commentary, and reportage about the $4.9B project to build the Barclays Center arena and 15-16 towers at a crucial site in Brooklyn.

As of 2018, after the arena and four towers were built, Greenland will own 95% of future construction.
